Sphero's interactive Spider-Man is Wi-Fi connected, but only for content updates. That being said, kids can still run around a room with Spidey pretending to fight baddies, as a built-in motion sensor triggers sound effects like punches, kicks, and Spider-Man's web shooters.

It couldn't be better timing then for Sphero to unveil what may be the most unique Spider-Man item for fans.

In the game next to the story, you will also be saving people, which is important to complete a mission properly.
